Larry Samano and his family enjoy a moment of wonder not only at the spectacle of the dazzling fireworks overhead in Douglas July 4, but of an experience shared by more than 300 million other Americans all in the same night. After 239 years of existence, the breadth of spacious skies and purple mountains’ majesty coupled with the sheer will to be free still unifies all Americans in pride and awe for at least one night each year.

The Douglas Volunteer Fire Department put on yet another wow-worthy July 4 fireworks display this year. The Department pays for the show out of a fund of their own. To donate to help replenish this fund, please call Fire Chief Rick Andrews at Arrow Electric at 307-358-2334.
